Black discoloration?
    #3373094 - 11/17/04 10:00 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

My cakes are on their second flush and I've noticed today that 2 of them have a black-like discoloration at the very top edge rim in one place. It is definitely not anything "growing", but just a discoloration. Also both cakes are fruiting great, just picked huge ones this morning, that were tiney last night. I know everyone talks about the blueing occuring with bruising and I have noticed that some of the shrooms I picked from the first flush would blue right away and if held too long would start to darken to black. I guess I am wondering if the cake itself can discolor to black like that, probably from me picking them up to pick...and if so will it stay like that, or go away? Just want to make sure I don't have something funky going on. Like I said, so far there is nothing "growing" there, nothing that resembles mold of any kind, just the discoloration. Thanks in advance guys.

if it isnt growing (which means it's mold) it is just spores from the shrooms that u harvested
no worries

Oh!!! Duh!!! I didn't even think about that!. Now that you mention that, I do recall noticing that a couple I had picked yesterday had black specks that I figured were spores dropping (first time it has happened to me). Sorry total newbie brain fart. I guess I didn't think about it "coloring" the cake.

Yeah, what Hamurabi said. Spores appear black-dark purple. Nice lips.

Yeah its hard to support a thread with a picture icon like that... :smirk:

Just spores anyway Im sure.

Glad to see your fruiting is going well, im sure most of us have been following your progress. By the way are still planning on this being your only grow or are you going to start another cycle in the future?

Actually, I had always planned on doing more than one.  I incubated a set of "Orissa" after these that I am happy to report just starting pinning today (after 11 days) Yea!.  These Orissa have been the quickest colonizer (14 days) and pinner (11 days) I've had so far.  I also started another set of jars (Hawaiian) about a week after the Orrisa and they are still not colonized 100% after 24 days!!!!  Don't know what's up with that, very annoying.  I am planning on knocking up another set as soon as I get some syringes.  Took a spore print of my first batch, but would like to try some new stuff first.  I am quick running out of space for tubs and empty outlets :smile:  May have to get a "Martha", though one of my friends says he can totally convert a closet I have...hmmm...we'll see.
